Tesla Powerwall is an energy game-changer. The same ground-breaking Tesla battery technology that has revolutionised the electric car market is now available to power your home.

Powerwall empowers homeowners and commercial property owners to store clean solar energy for use round-the-clock and incorporates all the smart technology you’d expect from Tesla.

Now installed with Backup Gateway it provides protection from power cuts (all too frequent occurrences due to increasing extreme weather events). A solar PV system – without the addition of a Powerwall – will shut down during a power cut for the safety of the grid. However – teamed with a Powerwall system – solar panels continue to produce energy during an outage.

This feature makes it an attractive option for homeowners and businesses needing to keep freezers frozen, lights on and tills working during grid outages. Powerwall owners can also take advantage of the cheapest energy rates in the UK, saving up to 75% on utility bills.

Powerwall can be installed alongside any new or existing Solar PV installation or on its own to take advantage of Load Shifting.

A typical installation with solar includes solar panels and an inverter for converting the DC energy generated by the panels into AC.

Powerwall battery system and Tesla Gateway with current sensors which controls the battery and tells it when to charge and discharge. In backup applications, a secondary circuit may be required that powers key appliances. The components you require will depend on how you use your home battery.
